1980 Hamer USA Special Vintage Guitar Transparent Yellow w/ DiMarzio, Case


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1980 Hamer USA Special in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case. This Hamer features a solid mahogany body, curly flame maple cap with a gloss Transparent Yellow finish, and a DiMarzio humbucker pair.

The pairing of mahogany and maple yields both rich warmth and clear treble cut, and the Dimarzio humbuckers are full and throaty, with a broad lower midrange bark and exquisite treble cut. The bridge pickup has a more aggressive, focused bite, while the neck is smoother and broader. This Hamer weighs 8lbs 8oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 string, low action, and accurate intonation.
